Wonderful Dar Yacout

What an amazing place! Needed a guide to find it in the back streets of souk and there was no signs on the door etc! The doors opened into a scene from Arabian Nights ! Amazing! The food was a little disappointing though, we were expecting more spicy unique dishes but it was usual lamb & couscous... read more

One of the most beautiful restaurants you will ever enjoy, and live entertainment as well. Start your evening with a cocktail on the rooftop with a view over the entire Medina and then enjoy the incredible architecture, furnishings and sights and smells inside. This is not a cheap night, but it is a night you will never forget.

Stunning decor, with bar on the roof to see beautiful views...the food was wonderful and with music playing through the meal gently in the background, the palatial atmosphere was quite entoxicating. A most memorable evening!

Dar Yacout is a magnificent restaurant set in Marrakech, it boasts spectacular views from the top of the restaurant with its pure vintage historical setting within, the food is plentiful and incredibly good as with the service, 13 years ago Tony Blair was a guest whilst I was visiting and on my recent visit Bill Clinton was dining, it attracts...

Wonderful Riad. Staff super. Food good. I went there with my gf and I was totally suprised. First, drink in the rooftop @ sunrise, then dinner at first floor of the riad, fantastic atmosphere. 70 euro each for a fixed menu (good meal not excellent). To be try once life.

This is a total experience - not just a restaurant visit. The food is almost a sideline. Starting on the rooftop of this beautiful old Riad you are served pre-dinner drinks by attentive, professional and friendly staff. Coming down into the courtyard of the Riad you are hived off into one of the dinning areas. Rose petals are strewn across... More

While the food was ok, we had a wonderful evening. The service was excellent, but the music made it very special.

This restaurant is quite tricky to find and I personally recommend getting a taxi there for safety as it appears to be in a bit of a rough part of the Medina. I am not sure if it seemed worse to us because we were in the middle of a power cut, so as we were being drove down the... More

myself and a friend were recommended this restaurant which is inside an old palace. From the outside your taken down a dark alleyway and being two women on our own we actually thought at first we were going to be robbed or something. The outside was a tiny little hidden doorway on a deserted street but once you walk inside... More
